Hard to believe, but there are a few spots in the city I quite like. Below is my list, but what is your favorite spot(s) in Hong Kong?
1. Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden, Diamond Hill.
Very beautiful and tranquil Chinese Tang dynasty style nunnery and garden. The place was built using traditional Chinese wooden construction techniques and offers visitors much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
2. HAECO "spot".
There is a spot at the western end of the airport next to the HAECO hangers where you can see across the Pearl River Delta. On clear days you can glimpse Macau, Zhuhai and the western shore of the Delta in the distance. Sometimes I just go there with my wife and look out across the expanse of water and watch the planes takeoff and land.
3. Tai Long Wan, Sai Kung
The beach with the best sand in the city. Not the easiest beach to get to without a boat, but it offers very clear water (for HK standard).
